The Portland International Film Festival is usually in February. If one of your members is from the NorthWest, you could enter into the NW Film Festival in November. They have a year round showing of films as well. Perhaps they would be interested.

BTW, thanks for all your hard work on the matrix shows.

We have submitted this to the L.A. All Sports Film Festival and are waiting to hear back, so you may be in luck! I can post here or send you an email if it is. There will also be a screening at the Park City Film and Music Festival in Utah, and maybe at the Atlanta Film Festival, pending notice.

The film is 1 hour. The first half follows his early years and basketball career, and the second half follows his music career and battle with cancer. For being a full hour, we can only delve so much in the various stages of his life - so, not SUPER deep, but it's covered in depth.

Hunter:

Please drop me a line; I'm on the Board of the Monterey County Film Commission and am working with both the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur and the Monterey Jazz Festival on film related events. Obviously, there could be a future opportunity for showing the same at the Jazz Fest.

Thanks.

Tisdale was a hell of a ballplayer. I remember an article Rolling Stone did on him as a high schooler.

The Golden State Warriors used to enter the arena to the sounds of Do I Do, by Stevie Wonder. I knew then that BBall and music were a perfect match in so many ways. That notion has only grown stronger throughout the years.

I happy to see this player of music and sport and champion in life, albeit short a short life, recognized for his achievements.

Very cool Hunter.
